MAC Nudes & Metallics Eye Shadow Review, Swatches and Photos (Part 2: Metallics)

Today I have the four LE metallic eye shadows from MAC's latest PRO collection, Nudes & Metallics. All four eye shadows are veluxe pearl formula ($18.00 CA/$15.00 US), product photos taken with flash, swatches in natural light on NC 40 skin.

Deep Fixation, Love's Lure, Crimson Tryst and Brazenly.

Deep Fixation, Love's Lure, Crimson Tryst and Brazenly.

Deep Fixation - a rich, metallic copper brown with copper shimmer. Excellent pigmentation and smooth texture.

Love's Lure - a medium metallic orange based red which reads quite bright on the skin. Excellent pigmentation and smooth texture.

Crimson Tryst - a deep red based metallic burgundy. Excellent pigmentation and smooth texture.

Brazenly - a deep blackened, red based metallic purple.Excellent pigmentation and smooth texture.

Without sounding like a broken record, all four shadows are highly pigmented, have a lovely smooth metallic finish and are very blendable. What I love so much about this offering is how appropriate the shades are for fall...these colours strike me as having an almost gothic feel because of the predominance of deep red and wine tones. They aren't the most office friendly, but I like that! The quality and edginess of this collection reminds me of what MAC collections used to be like over a decade ago.

Grade: A+
